BARREN, is a fictional suspense novel set in Brentwood, a modern city filled with high-rise buildings, state-of-the-art health care, plentiful job opportunities, and a dense population only days away from an epidemic.
At the center of the conflict, lies five citizens each dealing with the stress of the fear-spreading news. Cara, a millennial learns her five-figure salary can't withstand the cost of the vaccine needed to save her life. Liam, a middle-aged billionaire manages to lose everything that he once held dear. Jacqui, a veteran doctor unknowingly stumbles into a human-trafficking ring and must do the unspeakable to protect those closest to her. Justice, a police officer, uncovers a trend of missing black women after his sister goes missing. And Angela, a CEO, turns to extreme alternative resources when she learns she's incapable of bearing her own children.
These five strangers have one thing in common. Mercy Hospital. This is a tale without villains, but merely, average people willing to do reprehensible things to preserve life.
